Monday Night Combat Review

Finally I am getting around to writing my thoughts on Monday Night Combat. Firstly, this game is very very fun and is well worth the price. With that said it has a number of serious problems which I hope to bring to your attention before you consider purchasing it.

Firstly, the server browser could use a severe overhaul. Instead of saying how many players are in a server, we are told how many spaces there are; for example lots of servers had -5 and -7 spaces free. Very strange. Also the number of players actually in-game and the number of players Steam says are in-game are completely unrelated, I've had friends trying to join my match of 6 out of 8 people, and saying that Steam is telling them 13 people with 12 spaces are in the game. WhatisthisIdonteven.

Also on this issue, if you do manage to find a server with spaces, far too often will you recieve an error telling you that either your client or the server is running a different version of the game with no clarification or any details. Oh and also your filters for the server brower can and will reset everytime you join or leave a match.

BUT, if a pure miracle happens and you actually manage to make it into a game you will find it bloody good fun. I was up until 3am last night playing and loved every minute. The addition of bots makes the game feel far more fast paced than Team Fortress 2 and my two favourite classes have to be either Support (Think Medic/Engineer combined), and Assassin (Rawrswordstabbydeadpoofinvisible). There is also a mode to defend your base against endless waves of enemy bots which can be played in single player, in my view this mode is nowhere near as fun as fighting against other players but to each his own.

In conclusion, Monday Night Combat has alot of teething problems which if you are willing to overlook, hide a very fun team based shooter.
